He has been studying complex systems, principally those embodied in the human brain, since 1985. He has led international collaborative research projects in high-performance software methods for neuroscience and collaborative modeling software in UK and US, and originated the NeuroML standard for computational neuroscience models. He was founding Director of the EPSRC/MRC Doctoral Training Centre in Neuroinformatics and founding CEO of Axiope, a provider of collaborative software for scientists, recently acquired by ResearchSpace. Since 2007 he has focused on computational models of energy-related systems, most recently using probabilistic methods.
